In case you haven't noticed from the constant parades I've been throwing around my neighborhood for the past four months, 2014 marks the 75th Anniversary of Batman's creation by Bill Finger and Some Artist. To mark the occasion, DC is setting aside the month of May to honor one of the Caped Crusader's most successful ventures into mass media: the 1966 Batman television show!
All month, DC's titles will feature variant covers by Batman '66cover artist Mike Allred, drawing the DC Universe in the style of the '60s TV show, and they are pretty awesome. Check out a handful below, featuring Superman, Wonder Woman, and even Swamp Thing '66!
What is assuredly the weirdest sentence I'll have written in all my years at this website: Archie Andrews will heroically sacrifice his life to save that of a deae friend in the penultimate issue of Life With Archie in July.
For most of his publication history, the Silver Surfer has been a character marked by tragedy and tumult. The inherent irony of the character was that he could traverse the vastness of space with ease and wield immeasurable power in the palm of his hand, but he could hardly bear the torture of his own emotions.
The first issue of the brand new Silver Surfer series by writer Dan Slott, artist Mike Allred and colorist Laura Allred chucks a lot of that baggage out the window, and, believe it or not, it’s all the better for it.
Marvel teased a bit of Mike Allred 's art when it announced he'd be working with writer Dan Slott on a new Silver Surfer ongoing series a few months back during New York Comic Con, but today the publisher finally hit us with a wave of shiny new Norrin Radd art. In addition to Allred's previously seen cover, there's three new pages from March's Silver Surfer #1 infused with the Madman creator and recent FF artist's brand of cosmic comic energy, plus a variant cover by Francesco Francavilla, an animal variant by Chris Samnee and a (appropriately dubbed) young variant by Skottie Young. I'm pretty sure that if Kid Galactus chopmed down every planet in adorable cereal-bowl-style, Reed Richards would've just let him have Earth.
Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero's TV adaptation of the Vertigo comic iZombiehas made its first casting choices, including the male lead.
That role, a police detective named Clive (a character who wasn't in the comic), has gone to Malcolm Goodwin, who starred in the A & E series Breakout Kings. Alexandra Krosney of the sitcom Last Man Standing and Alias' David Anders have also been cast as female lead Liv's best friend, Peyton, and the chief antagonist, Blaine, respectively.
If none of those names look familiar, it's because the TV version of iZombie is shaping up to be vastly different from the Chris Roberson and Mike Allred-created comic that inspired it. Even the lead character's name has apparently changed from Gwen to Liv.
Fresh off the fan-funded Veronica Mars movie, series creator Rob Thomas is teaming up with writer Diane Ruggerio to write the pilot for a show based on the Vertigo comic iZombie by Chris Roberson and Mike Allred.
The series is in development at the CW, as many TV projects based on DC properties are. Like the comic, the show would follow the exploits of a zombie med student named Gwen who has to eat brains to keep her human appearance.
Saturday afternoon's Marvel panel was billed as an Inhumanity panel, but most of the announcements were for new Marvel solo books, and there was almost – almost – news about the future of the Ultimate Universe. But not quite.
Marvel Senior Vice President of Publishing Tom Brevoort took the lead, joined by Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso and Ultimates editor Mark Paniccia, as well as writers Kieron Gillen, Jonathan Hickman, Kelly Sue DeConnick and Dan Slott.
One way creators try to leave their stamp on company-owned characters is to raise the stakes of a story. "I told the biggest ________ story ever," they want to say as they move on to other work. Of course, raising the stakes in a Fantastic Four book, considering that the original creative team of Jack Kirby and Stan Lee put the heroes in a situation in which Earth was threatened by a planet-eating demigod with a device that could destroy the universe, is a particular challenge...
The month of November will see the first issues for some of the major new titles from the Marvel Now initiative. As such, Marvel Comics has revealed variant covers to FF #1 by Art Adams and Skottie young, while also providing fans with a page of interior art by series artist Mike Allred...
